R90/6 1974 in NZ

Hi
thought I'd show u my 1974 R90/6 I just bought as a do up.Bike, came from the USA about 15 years ago and has never been put on the road legaly runs good but needs a good clean up, I have now striped all bodywork off for a repaint, taken rear sub frame off and painted rear swinging arm , shocks etc cleaned up wheels .
I was a bit shocked to find a broken front brake disk but lucky I had a spare cast iron disk doing nothing.
When I removed the front fork gaitor the oil gushed out and the fork seal popped out also is this common as I have only seen leaky fork seals.
the speedo works but the odometre goes wild can anyone tell me if I have a w1.144 speedo in mph and I replace it with a w 711 in kph will it read ok , or what gearing can I swap over inside the speedo .
I have bought new mufflers and a new seat along with new tyres so with the new paint job it will look good.
Would any one have a good chrome headlight ring
